TO THE EDITOR:
Regarding a 1975 campus invitation to former KKK leader David Duke, political science major Andrew Brennen writes “Does Arthur Pope still believe the KKK have a legitimate claim to first amendment protection when they speak and recruit students at campus sponsored events?”
As a long-time member of the ACLU, I certainly believe that they do.
Perhaps, after a few more political science courses, Brennen will have learned more about the meaning of the First Amendment.
It says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
